The Pinnacle Overlook Trail at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park near Middlesboro Kentucky, is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back hike to Pinnacle Overlook - Cumberland Gap's most iconic overlook.

The trail is short but well worth the drive to the top of the mountain in the middle of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. By following the trail, you cross from Kentucky into Virginia, where the overlook lies.

Below is the town of Cumberland Gap, Virginia, and you can see the Tri-State Peak where Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia meet in the park.

With stunning views of the valley below, this is a must-see if you're driving by Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
